20 Jahre QUANTUM, 20 Jahre starke Leistung, hervorragende Betriebssicherheit und hohe Effizienz – der Geburtstag unserer Kältemaschine bietet den perfekten Anlass, um zwei Jahrzehnte der Vorzeigeserie Revue passieren zu lassen.
Digitisation is one of the economic megatrends of our age. Most businesses are reliant on smooth-running information technology (IT) – and thus on data centres, the IT all-rounder. But how can a sensitive digital infrastructure be operated as safely, efficiently and sustainably as possible? With its QUANTUM chiller and SPECTRUM heat pump, ENGIE Refrigeration now takes care of ten local data centres belonging to a German provider – and is breaking new ground for the IT industry in the process.
Heat pumps instead of gas! At a state-of-the-art real-estate complex near the French metropolitan region of Bordeaux, a climate-neutral future is in the air, assisted by a new SPECTRUM Water from ENGIE Refrigeration. In our interview with Roman Steddin, the product manager explains why our heat pump is exactly the right choice for this project.
Anyone who has been in hospital knows that pleasant temperatures assist recovery. A clinic in Bavaria now provides such temperatures with a QUANTUM Water chiller from ENGIE Refrigeration, ensuring that the clinic runs smoothly.
The redesigned QUANTUM Water from ENGIE Refrigeration has been available for about half a year. How is the model being received on the international market? And which properties do customers appreciate most? Our expert Daniel Keller, Head of Sales & Business development at ENGIE Refrigeration, shares his initial conclusions and talks about plans for the coming months.
Nothing works without functioning data centres. They are the backbone of our modern society. And no data centre can operate without refrigeration technology. Chillers secure their uninterruptible supply. Users around the world rely on the QUANTUM models from ENGIE Refrigeration to perform this task.
Airports are the hubs of our globalised world. Refrigeration technology plays a key role in ensuring that processes run smoothly and visitors feel comfortable in the terminal buildings. In this interview our expert Bernd Heine, Head of Sales Support, explains what the aviation industry requires from chillers – and the sophisticated solutions that ENGIE Refrigeration provides for this business sector. In addition, he presents the best practices we have developed in our many years of experience.
From producing companies and data centres to hospitals and hotels: wherever companies use refrigeration on an industrial scale, they produce valuable waste heat. Anyone who utilises this waste heat saves energy, lowers operating costs and protects the environment – a real win-win-win situation. With its smart chillers with heat recovery, ENGIE Refrigeration assists businesses on their path to greater efficiency and sustainability.
The digitalisation of the economy is advancing in leaps and bounds, and it has not steered clear of the refrigeration sector. In this interview, our expert Senad Handanovic, head of MSR at ENGIE Refrigeration, explains the digital features of the redesigned QUANTUM Water – and the added value that these chillers therefore offer their users.
An interdisciplinary team at ENGIE Refrigeration spent about a year working hard to redevelop the water-cooled QUANTUM Water series – and managed to set a new standard on the international refrigeration market. How did employees experience this period, what were their goals, and what do they believe makes the QUANTUM Water so unique? CoolDown magazine took a closer look.
For which areas are applications with heat recovery suitable ? And how does this technology help operating companies lower their costs? Our expert Markus Enzensperger answers these questions in our interview.
Erring on the side of caution – in the chemicals industry in particular, this is a number-one priority for many areas. One area that is highly sensitive is production. A German chemicals industry giant recently approached ENGIE Refrigeration to help fulfil its need for an industrial refrigeration system at its production site in Singapore – one characterised by absolute reliability.
The QUANTUM chillers from ENGIE Refrigeration are famous around the world: for almost 20 years, both the air-cooled and the water-cooled models have continued to set new benchmarks on the international refrigeration market. The secret of their success? It’s quite simple: ENGIE Refrigeration is constantly refining its QUANTUM chillers – and thus keeps achieving new benchmarks in terms of energy efficiency and sustainability.
The QUANTUM Air from ENGIE Refrigeration is available with an integrated free cooling register. The chiller thus ensures maximum energy efficiency and minimum costs at any outside temperature.
In many clinics, doctors and nurses are working heroically for our health. This is something we have all become strongly aware of in the current corona pandemic. And because nothing can be left to chance in medical facilities, reliable refrigeration is essential. Around the world, ENGIE Refrigeration is helping to ensure that doctors and nurses can count on stable processes: our QUANTUM chillers provide reliable refrigeration for more than 150 hospitals worldwide.
Energy efficiency is incredibly important when it comes to improving climate protection, especially in the energy-intensive industry of refrigeration and climate control technology. ENGIE is making a considerable contribution towards greater sustainability with its new QUANTUM Air generation 4.0 chillers, and has taken a pioneering role in the refrigeration industry with its highly efficient chillers.
The Elbphilharmonie has been breaking every visitor record since it opened in January 2017. More than eight million people have visited the Hamburg concert hall so far and two water-cooled QUANTUM chillers run in the background, quiet as a whisper.
Schoen Clinic Vogtareuth has been using on reliable refrigeration technology from ENGIE Refrigeration since 2010. When the clinic decided to build a new surgery wing, it was certain that climate control would be handled by two powerful QUANTUM chillers.
ARBURG now runs three QUANTUM chillers from ENGIE Refrigeration. The company is based in Loßburg, Baden-Württemberg, and relies on the QUANTUM because energy efficiency and reliability are essential in machine production.
Process cooling plays an important role in many industries. It ensures that temperature-sensitive production processes are cooled precisely. This enables production processes to run smoothly, which in turn creates production reliability. Completely reliable refrigeration is also essential to the chemicals and pharmaceuticals industry. The production of medication requires complex production processes and relies on refrigeration technology that is of high quality, fail-safe, and also energy efficient.
To run properly, every hospital needs their medical facilities’ refrigeration to be efficient. So it only makes sense that the largest chiller park in the world is currently housed at a hospital: The Liverpool Hospital in New South Wales, Australia, has been relying on sustainable refrigeration since 2018 with eight QUANTUM chillers from ENGIE Refrigeration. To find out what chillers actually do at the hospital, and what properties these chillers need, read our latest magazine article.
QUANTUM Air chillers are highly efficient and sustainable refrigeration solutions for many industries. And the new generation of air-cooled chillers now offers even more: the overhauled models are suitable for applications from 250 kilowatts to 2 megawatts. This makes them even more powerful than their predecessor, and the most powerful solution on the international market for air-cooled chillers with magnetic-bearing compressor technology. The new QUANTUM Air models are available worldwide from 24 July 2019.
